NEW ORLEANS – Following the completion of his 26th season at the helm of the Arkansas women’s track and field program, head coach Lance Harter has been selected as the NCAA National Women’s Coach of the Year announced Thursday by the USTFCCCA.
 
A five-time recipient of the award, Harter guided the Razorback women to their first NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championship by a 10-point margin over host institution Oregon. Arkansas accumulated 72 points during the four-day competition.
 
The Razorbacks entered the NCAA Outdoor Championship with the most qualifiers in the nation boasting 21 opportunities to score.
 
Thirty of his team’s points at the national meet came from two student-athletes — Dominique Scott and Lexi Weeks — who combined to win three individual event titles. Arkansas also produced three NCAA silver medalists at outdoor nationals with Taylor Ellis-Watson (400 meters), Jessica Kamilos (steeplechase) and the 1,600 relay.
 
Prior to Arkansas’ national success, Harter led the Razorbacks to their fourth Southeastern Conference Triple Crown conquering conference foes for the seventh-consecutive time at the SEC Outdoor Championship. For his efforts, Harter received SEC Coach of the Year recognition – the 27th time he’s earned the accolade in his illustrious career.
